There are of course interested parties with financial gain as their motivation. The objections of local communities to the project are well documented. This is an opportunity for Planing Authority to demonstrate an awareness of the threat that these local communities feel they are under and respond accordingly by halting the application now.

You are urged to listen to the voices of local people who have no financially vested interests and who simply do not want their lives blighted by this proposed development that on all counts is unnecessary. It duplicates an already existing larger nearby facility and is thus surplus to requirements in this location.
